Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Hypoallergenic Formula Dry Dog Food
Complete dry food for dogs over one year, with food intolerances. Especially formulated to reduce ingredient and nutrient intolerances. With selected sources of protein and carbohydrate.
Food intolerances and allergies occur when your pet’s immune system reacts to something, frequently innocuous. The gastrointestinal tract and skin are two very sensitive organs which are exposed to all manner of things and sometimes the body can’t cope. When this happens your pet’s immune system reacts with food intolerance or allergies.
Your dog will present with increased itchy skin or diarrhoea because it is reacting to a specific ingredient in its food such as animal or vegetable protein which is potentially allergenic. It doesn’t matter how much or how little of something your pet’s food contains, because even the smallest trace can trigger a bad allergic reaction. Unfortunately, pet owners can only rarely identify the exact ingredient which causes an allergic reaction. Most pets don’t suffer from extreme allergies but rather from a variety of food intolerances. No matter whether it is a clinically recognised specific food allergy or a more general intolerance of certain ingredients or nutrients, it can be distressing and worrying for you and your pet.
- Hydrolysed protein: Hydrolysed soya protein consists of peptides with low molecular weight. This makes the food hypoallergenic and highly digestible.
- Skin barrier: A patented complex with high levels of biotin, niacin and pantothenic acid, combined with a zinc-linoleic acid mixture, helps to reduce fluid loss through the skin and to improve the barrier effect of the skin.
- EPA/DHA: Fatty acids to help maintain a healthy digestive system and a healthy skin. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are long-chain omega-3 fatty acids which can help to reduce inflammatory skin reactions.
- Digestive Health: With nutrients to support a balanced digestive system. A combination of fermentable fibre (beet pulp, FOS) with zeolite promotes balanced intestinal flora and supports a healthy intestinal mucous membrane. This food is lactose and gluten-free
